The Art Box

Nicole is hosting this weekly activity over at Tired, Need Sleep. All you

need to do is fill a box full of crafty stuff and leave it out for your kiddo to use all week.
Let them create
whatever they want.

Johnsie painted with a plastic newspaper bag that I folded up, and then snipped the ends and fastened with a twisty.

Cool, spattery effect.

Using lots of paint,

and then using the end of the paint brush to make designs.

Dollar store find. We are going to do a transportation theme this week.


Johnsie loved painting this.

Of course it had to be green. His favorite color. We want to paint the belly red but, since he hasn't stopped playing with it yet, we haven't got that far.

When Manny and I came home from hockey practice we were given this wonderful picture made just for us. Thanks Johnsie.

We are really into H's and A's

It was a good week!

My kids have been begging me for those snakes for months. At some point I'll break down and get one....

I love wooden things from Michael's - Anna loves painting on wood. It's neat that Johnsie is more into art nowadays.

I love the idea of painting with the plastic bag. I'll have to try that.
